Question

Sound Bar Tv Connection

Hi I just bought a Insignia TV 55DF710 along with a Sony Sound Bar HT-S100f. I connected the two HDMI ARC slots but there is no sound from the sound bar. Can anyone assist me please?

Answer
ARC is very hit or miss.

You can see if:

1. The HDMI cable mentions ARC. I use AMAZONBASICS because cheap and has the wiring needed for ARC.
2. See if the TV has a firmware update.
3. Check all the menus on both devices as to ARC (I'm not there to see the menus.)
4. Return the Sony and see if there's an Insignia bar. I find this to work at times when the maker is the same for TV and bar.

Sound delay

Okay so I got it to work with an optical cable instead but now there’s a sound delay. How do I sync?

Another area of pain. Check the manuals. Also try setting the audio to STEREO or PCM.
